JustCo appointed to manage co-working space at 20 Collyer Quay
| December 2018 |
JustCo has been appointed by GuocoLand to be the operator for its co-working space at 20 Collyer Quay, a prime location in Singapore’s Raffles Place. Set to open in April 2019, this will be JustCo’s 15th shared workspace, bringing the total number of JustCo centres to 23 across Asia. With the on-going strong demand for coworking spaces from small and medium businesses to large enterprises, JustCo’s expansion in Singapore and other parts of Asia comes at an opportune time.
Occupying 16,800 square feet in the commercial building and overseeing the stunning Fullerton Bay Hotel, JustCo at 20 Collyer Quay will introduce a multifaceted co-working community and add a unique tenant mix to the building, which will be a strong pull factor to attract other tenants. Shared workspaces like JustCo help to enhance the efficiency of space usage too, by allowing other tenants at 20 Collyer Quay to enjoy the centre’s community areas like the café, lounge area, and event spaces.
“Our accelerated expansion in Singapore is aligned with JustCo’s mission to continually change and redefine collaborative working. With 80% of our centres located at the gateway to Singapore’s core CBD, it opens up great opportunities for 2 businesses to work in premium Grade-A premises. Our latest centre at 20 Collyer Quay will continue to serve the demand from large corporates and Fortune 500 companies who are increasingly seeking to benefit from a diverse community, engaging and innovative environment. On top of that, the flexible lease terms and effective cost savings at JustCo are big pull factors too”, says Mr. Kong Wan Sing, Founder and CEO of JustCo.
“Co-working is indeed the future of work, and we are excited to instil this vibrancy at the prime location of Raffles Place at 20 Collyer Quay. Our initial marketing efforts have received strong interest and pre-commitments from enterprise clients,” Wan Sing added.
The visibility and space dynamics for JustCo at 20 Collyer Quay will be different from most of its other centres. Instead of being housed on upper office floors, this centre enjoys a unique, direct street frontage facing the busy Collyer Quay and sheltered access to Raffles Place MRT. The co-working centre spreads across three levels and is interconnected by an iconic stairway which offers easy access, connectivity and convenience for members. JustCo members can expect spacious hot and dedicated desk areas, bespoke suites, event and collaboration spaces, as well as access to all 23 JustCo centres across Asia.
Ms Valerie Wong, General Manager, Commercial of GuocoLand Singapore said, “We are pleased to appoint JustCo as our co-working space operator. With their expertise in workspace planning, community engagement and technology capabilities, JustCo at 20 Collyer Quay centre will offer members the opportunity to network, and enjoy an agile and unique working environment. The design of JustCo’s latest co-working concept will further enhance our building’s vibrancy.”
For members who seek respite from their hectic schedules, other highlights of the space include a meditation corner, snooze lounge and a reading corner situated at the basement. There is also a games corner with arcade and darts machines, phone rooms, mother’s room and a café where both members and public can get their quick caffeine fix. Aesthetically, the space will feature bold and vivid colour tones, a sprawl of greenery and tropical elements, alongside wood flooring and furnishing.
